Description The Snake Alley Historic District is largely a residential area located in Burlington, Iowa, United States. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975 and was included in the Heritage Hill Historic District, which surrounds it, in 1982. The historic district includes ten contributing properties. It is centered on Snake Alley, a 275ft brick roadway, built in 1894, that rises 58.3ft from Washington Street to Columbia Street. The alley receives its name from the five half curves and two quarter curves that climb the hill. Cobblestone Alley is the eastern boundary of the district. It is a very steep roadway composed of large, limestone blocks. Six houses, built between 1845 and about 1880 surround Snake Alley. Schwartz' Auto Electric Service building and the First United Church of Christ complex round out the contributing structures.Contributing properties
